Not to sound like a dbag, but I hate when people my age (mid 20s) get all hyped about going to a "fancy dinner" at Cheesecake Factory. The food there sucks, your palate needs help

The last time i was excited for a company dinner was when the SVP at our clients took us to dinner at the same banquet hall where the nobel peace prize winners have their banquet.

That was cool outside of that...the private restauramt at the quarter deck above the 911 memorial in nyc was pretty cool.

LMAO D2 yaaaaassssss! 👏 I'm a completely prick myself when it comes to food and alcohol I drink, but I always know it's because I'm not spending my own money and I can easily get my ass back to a Budweiser and instant noodles if it was my own money. 💁

Forget about class implications, what bothers me is that the portions they serve are fucking ridiculous. My ex's morbidly obese father loved the place. I'll never forget the time we took him there for his bday and he said, from behind a towering mountain of fried onion fritters, that Cheesecake Factory was the only restaurant that served "decent portions" of food. All opinions on soulless chain restaurants aside, we can all agree that CF is a public health disaster and it must be stopped

I been having a hard time at my firm lately, with isolation because of COVID, among other things. Being an younger (31) woman associate in a firm of only 3 other woman and 10 men, it is hard to relate or find anything in common with anyone. Everybody at the firm is married with children and/or has nothing in common with me. Even my assistant is older than me, married with a son. It’s just hard for me to be excited at work or balance work with socialization when I don’t have a friend...

Hi everyone, not sure if this is an appropriate post but wanted to get your thoughts. My cousin is going back to our home country. She and her bf broke up over little things.

Do you think It would be a good idea for me to ping ex and hint to the ex that she is going back so he would reach out and they can talk the last time ?
